you're welcome :) you're really into mysteries :D is there a particular kind of historical mysteries you like? or just any?

I would say Victorian mysteries. Anything from Sherlock Holmes (and Sherlock Holmes pastiche,) Will Thomas's Barker and Lleweyln series to Dickens' Edwin Drood. I have a thing for cobblestoned streets and gaslight lamps.

How about yourself?

The History Detectives? I've never heard of that show but will have to look for it. I'm intrigued.
